Wild Wild Punjab Review


A group of drunk boys Rajesh Khanna, Gaurav Jain, Maan Arora and Honey Singh decide to avenge Khanne’s breakup by gatecrashing his ex’s wedding and achieving closure. What ensues is a bold and impromptu plan for a “breakup trip” leading to unforeseen adventures in this maze of a land called — Wild Wild Punjab!

What’s good about the movie

The movie “Wild Wild Punjab” beautifully captures the essence of friendship, making it relatable on multiple levels. Whether it’s helping a friend get over a tough breakup, supporting them through thick and thin, or embarking on spontaneous road trips together, the bond shared by the four main characters is sure to bring a smile to your face. As you watch, you might find yourself reminiscing about your own friendships, recalling moments when you comforted a heartbroken friend in need of closure. “Wild Wild Punjab” takes you on a nostalgic journey, showcasing the true meaning of friendship and brotherhood in a way that is both heartwarming and unforgettable.

Moreover, the occasional comedy might entice you, though only in bits and parts. While some scenes are genuinely funny, much of the humour feels forced. It’s evident that the filmmakers are trying hard to make the movie hilarious, but only a few scenes achieve this. These moments of genuine comedy, however, do make the movie easier to watch.

What’s not

All the entertaining parts you’ve seen in the trailer are the same highlights you’ll find in the movie, perhaps with an added dose of laughter. Unfortunately, there’s nothing particularly exciting or thrilling about the film, as the plot is predictable and lacks any surprise elements. The entire script feels transparent, so you always know what’s going to happen next. While the film doesn’t drag or become unnecessarily dramatic, the additional elements meant to enhance the story simply don’t entertain as much as you might hope.


Varun Sharma delivers yet another familiar performance, reminiscent of his roles in the Fukrey series and Chhichhore. While his comic timing and facial expressions are impeccable, there’s a sense of déjà vu as we’ve seen this before. Manjot Singh, on the other hand, brings a refreshing energy to his role. Playing a macho character who lives by his father’s principles, Singh’s exceptional performance makes his character intriguing and thoroughly enjoyable onscreen. Jassie Gill, with his boyish charm and cuteness, will likely win your heart. He delivers a decent performance, adding to the film’s overall appeal.

Sunny Singh, as the notorious friend, is easygoing and plays his part quite well, leaving little to complain about. Patralekhaa and Ishita Raj, despite their limited screen time, make a significant impact. They not only add glamour to the story but also bring much-needed spunk and value to the narrative, making their presence felt.

Story and Script Analysis

Harman Wadala and Sandeep Jain have penned the script and dialogues for “Wild Wild Punjab,” aiming to resonate with the youth familiar with various levels of “bakchodi” and “siyappa” (bullshit and madness). The story, written by Luv Ranjan, carries a distinct “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” flavour, presenting a woman as the antagonist and a man as the victim. While such dynamics do exist, the portrayal overlooks the vindictive nature that men can exhibit as well.

Despite efforts to add thrill and adventure, the movie falls short in delivering an enthralling experience. However, the characters are incredibly relatable, connecting with the audience instantly without requiring much build-up. Varun Sharma, aka Khanne, plays the heartbroken lover; Sunny Singh, aka Arore, is the flirtatious lover; Jassie Gill, aka Jainu, portrays the timid friend; and Manjot Singh, aka Honey Paaji, is the daring and loyal friend. These characters are genuine and relatable, reflecting the typical dynamics found in many friend groups.


Overall, “Wild Wild Punjab” is a movie best appreciated for its portrayal of friendship. Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh, Jassie Gill, and Sunny Singh take you on a breakup ride that is occasionally funny. The film gives off strong “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” vibes, so if you enjoy that genre, this might entice you as well. However, it’s a brainless comedy with some good punches, making it an easy watch without requiring much thought.
